partially borrowed from last year's letter :)

Dear festividder (and treaters),

Thank you so much for taking on one of my prompts! I enjoy all kinds of music styles, though I admit to favoring fast-paced/uptempo songs, and I particularly enjoy vids with attention to beat work and movement.

Some favorites music artists of mine: any pop from the 1980s (Madonna, Erasure and Depeche Mode in particular), B-52s, Cake, Beck, Gossip, Scissor Sisters, Chromeo, Black Keys, La Roux, Tori Amos, Muse, Goldfrapp, Nine Inch Nails, Postal Service, the Indigo Girls, Led Zeppelin, Tool, VAST, The Faint, Metric, Adele, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Interpol, The Shins, Dead Can Dance, and Zero 7. Just some ideas--seriously, go with whatever moves you.

And for tone, though I love goofy/happy, I'm happy with any kind of theme or pairing or mood that strikes you. I like slash, het and gen in equal measure. I'm not as big a fan of scary or violent vids, but you might convince me.

I'm requesting The Craft, Desperately Seeking Susan, Hackers, Losers, Muppets, Real Genius, RPF-Avengers, and Willow )

Now I want my assignment!!!

I'll post a more extensive Dear Festividder letter later, but I'm super squee-ful about festivids sign-ups.

If you've ever considered [community profile] festivids, you should give it a shot! It has been a source of major joy on both the giving and receiving ends for several years, and one of my favorite fannish things in general.

What I'm Requesting )

[community profile] festivids reveals are up! I made two vids this year Express Yourself and Little Bad Girl.

Festivids reveals always make me feel kinda like Willow: I knew it! I knew it! Well, not 'knew it' in the sense of having the slightest idea, but I knew there was something I didn't know.

I hadn't guessed my matched vidder, but this year I was pretty damn sure who my treater was. Who else knows me that well and is awesome enough to create such a delightful vid? THANK YOU DEI, I <3 YOU FOREVER AND EVERS!!!

I'm so excited for another year of festivids! I'll work up an official 'Dear Festividder' later, but here are my sign-ups:

[livejournal.com profile] festivids is live, the masterlist is here, and my gift vidder made me the most amazingly dancey and PERFECT Neverending Story vid.

I'm gonna go watch all the other amaaaaaaaazing vids now and I'll be back later with recs galore!

And in case you are wondering what all the fuss is about, or whether watching vids from obscure fandoms is worth your time, an enthusiastic and articulate explanation of why is totally relevant to your interests.

wahoo!

You guys, I'm so excited! I haven't gotten my assignment yet (and I am most certainly NOT compulsively checking my email to see if it has magically shown up in the least two minutes...) but I'll have it by Friday at the latest.

In the meantime, I've been listening through my iPod and floating ideas for all eight of the fandoms/sources that I offered. I've got at three to nine song ideas for each fandom now!!!

This has been such an awesome mental exercise for me as a vidder. I normally listen to music with my mental-visual filter firmly in place for the fandoms I have vidded for/plan to vid for (BSG, SPN, Buffy-verse, SGA, and Dollhouse). It has been unexpectedly liberating AND exciting to float through all of my music with eight new fandoms in mind. I know I'll narrow it down to one fandom once I get my assignment, but now I'm really excited about all the possibilities for new vids. Particularly the ideas I've had for movie vids, because the source footage is short enough that I could make ALL of those vid bunnies if my energy/muse/time all balances out.

I'm just crazy excited to be this excited about vidding again. I've had a slump for the last couple of months where several bunnies have been bumping around in my head and none of them have quite had the urgency/juice to make it to a completed product.

[livejournal.com profile] festivids fucking rocks my muse so far!!!

ETA: I have my assignment and it is aaaaaaaawesome! *FLAIL*

Dear Festividder:

Thank you so much for taking on one of my prompts! As you can probably tell by my requests, I'm a big fan of goofy, happy vids from goofy, happy fandoms.

I'm cool with all kinds of music styles (though I admit to favoriting upbeat and/or fast-paced music). A few favorites music artists of mine: any pop from the 1980s (Erasure and Depeche Mode in particular), Madonna, She Wants Revenge, Cake, Beck, Tori Amos, Muse, Goldfrapp, Nine Inch Nails, Postal Service, Fischerspooner, VAST, The Faint, Metric, and Zero 7. Just some ideas--seriously, go with whatever moves you.

And for tone, though I love goofy/happy, I'm happy with any kind of theme or pairing or mood that strikes you. I'm a slasher, so I definitely won't complain if that's where your muse takes you. I really can't think of anything you can do with any of these sources that I would totally hate, so go nuts!

Use/don't use my ideas, as you like. If you have fun making it, I'm totally sure that I will love it. Thank you for tackling any of these crazy mini-fandoms :)

My requests: Willow, How to Steal a Million, Court Jester, Cry-Baby, Flight of the Conchords, Neverending Story, Labyrinth and Hackers )

Thank you and happy [livejournal.com profile] festivids to all!

Boom Queen
